An abandoned ranch on the east side of the tracks. This was not the Colmor Cutoff they were waiting for.
Will coming down “Darwin’s Ladder”.
Some local kids were having a fire extinguisher fight when I walked into the lab one day.
The left cave is the largest of the three, and shows the most evidence of expansion.
